Catalog Description:
[2 hours] Techniques for visualization and representation of machine components using solid modeling and projection, section views, orthographic
projection, dimensioning and tolerancing, CAD techniques for solving vector problems.
Course Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this course, the students should be able to use AutoCAD to create multi-view drawings of mechanical components
including, section views and dimensioning. The student should also be able to use I-DEAS to create solid models of mechanical components. As a
result of experience with the two systems the student should understand the different types of CAD systems and their application areas.
Standard Course Outcomes:
1. Specific outcomes related to using AutoCAD:
 create 2D drawings of mechanical components employing layers, grids and snap;
 edit drawing using command such as delete, move, copy, trim, extend, array and object snap;
 apply appropriate line types;
 create multi-view drawings including sections;
 add dimensions, symbols and annotations to drawings; and
 manipulate CAD drawings in terms of plotting, exporting/importing blocks, merging drawings, and inserting drawings in applications
such as word processing documents.
2. Specific outcomes related to using a solid modeler
 create solid models of mechanical components using extrude, revolve, fillet, shell and draft;

understand the difference between features and parts;
modify features by picking or by using the history tree;
constrain and dimension geometry;
create surfaces by lofting, sweeping or by boundary; and
understand the structure of a high level CAD system including models, projects and teams.
3. As a result of experience with the two systems the student should understand the different types of CAD systems and their application
Assessment Tools: (to determine if outcomes and therefore the objectives have been achieved)
1. In-class quizzes and closed-book written and CAD exams.
2. Laboratory exercises.
The course consists of two parts. The first part deals with stress, strain and fatigue and the second part deals with vibration.
1. Introduction to Engineering College Computing system
2. AutoCAD structure and screen layout
3. 2D geometry construction using line (pick, snap, coordinates); erase; xline; circle; centerlines; polyline; spline; ellipse; rectangle; polygon;
point; and text
4. Editing: using move; copy; offset; mirror; array; rotate; trim; extend; chamfer; and fillet
5. Advanced commands: osnap, grips, blocks, layer attributes
6. Advanced editing of pline, spline and text
7. Orthographic multi-view drawings
8. Section views
9. Dimensioning, tolerances and a brief introduction to GD&T
10. SolidWorks structure and screen layout
11. Creating by sketching and using parts libraries
12. Viewing parts with dynamic display control
13. Selecting entities
14. Extrude, revolve, fillet, shell and draft functions
15. Modifying features
16. Constraints, dimensions and sections

Normal Lecture Class Schedule:
Attendance is taken. No credit is given for being late or leaving early.
Questions are entertained on reading material assigned for the day.
Detailed presentation of the material for the day
Quizzes mixed in with lecture using Response Cards from Responsive Innovations
Normal Laboratory Class Schedule:
Attendance is taken. No credit is given for being late or leaving early without completing all assignments.
Exercised from the previous period are place on instructor’s table
Students pick up their name cards and place them on top of the computer monitors they are using
Students perform exercises as described in notes on the web. Any unfinished exercises become homework.
Lecture Notes:
Lecture notes are posted on the course web site at least 24 hours in advance
Lecture notes have missing text and figures which are supplied during the lecture.
General Policies:
1. Makeup quizzes, tests or labs will normally not be given and will be assigned the grade of zero. This policy has been slightly modified for
those with documented excused absences as defined by The University of Toledo Missed Class Policy adopted 1/22/02. At the discretion of
the instructor, the missed quiz or test will either be assigned an average of the other tests or quizzes or a make-up quiz or test will be given.
2. No grades of DR, PR or I will be given. It is your responsibility to withdraw from the class by October 25, 2013 if you do not wish to
receive a grade.
3. No credit is given for attendance if you are more than 5 minutes late or leave early with undone work.
4. Laboratory exercises will generally be submitted by handing in hardcopy of the drawings. Hardcopy must contain the student’s name, course
(MIME 1100), section number and teaching assistant’s name.
5. Assignments will not be accepted after the start of the period on which it is due. Students may discuss assignments but each should do his/her
own work. All persons submitting identical or very similar assignments will receive twice the negative value of the assignment. For
example all those submitting the same work on a 10 point homework assignment will receive -20 points.
6. Students are expected to arrive at the laboratory period on time and work on the assigned drawings until at least 15 minutes to the hour.
Failure to do so will result in the student being marked absent for the period. Students who complete the assigned work before the end of the
period may leave after the following two conditions are met.
a. The student has received the graded drawings from the previous period and
b. Dr. White has checked that the drawings are complete and you have given him your name card.
7. Cheating on a test or quiz will result in an F in the course. Please refer to your student handbook for additional information concerning
academic dishonesty.
MIME 1100 Syllabus - 3
8. Sending data from any ResponseCard other than your own will result in an F in the course for you and the owner of the response
9. The College and University policies on academic dishonesty may be found in the appendices of the MIME Undergraduate Handbook on the
web at: http://www-mime.eng.utoledo.edu/programs/u_graduate/handbook/ugradhandbook.html
10. Reading assignments, as given on the Tentative Course Schedule, should be completed before coming to class. Quizzes may be given over
this material during the lecture period.
11. All cell phones, pagers and all electronic communication devices must be turned off before entering the lecture room. Students who
have devices that interrupt the class will be dropped from the course or given an F.
12. Any person talking or creating a disturbance during a lecture, quiz, test or other time when other students are concentrating will be
removed from the class.
General Philosophy:
Questions and comments are welcome and encouraged at anytime! Please don’t be bashful!
I do not lecture strictly from the textbook. I endeavor to provide a second point of view. Therefore it is advantageous for you to read the
textbook prior to class so you may compare the author’s approach with my approach and be prepared to question and differences. A detailed
schedule of lecture topics and related reading assignments is provided on the course web page.
I am willing to meet with students anytime I am available and welcome e-mail questions and discussion.
Use of Web:
This course syllabus, course schedule, lecture notes, and other information will be available on the web from links on the home page at:
Note the web page is not on the MIME server. It is on the Distance Learning server for reliability and an on-line grade book
Every effort will be made to post the lecture notes at least 24 hours before the lecture is to be given.
Regularly check the web for changes and updates. Each document contains the revision time and date at the top of the document so you can
easily tell if you have read or printed the most current version.
To make sure your Response Card is working check your grades on the course web site after each class. The proper operation of the response
card is your responsibility.
